    Can you read? Are you denying that WWiI got us out of the great depression? You do realize I hope that WWII was government spending. So show me how WWII didn't end the great depression.

    Of course WW2 got us out of FDR's horrible economic policies and recession! So, are you prescribing WAR to get us out of the obama Depression?

    Government spending is never appropriate during any times, good or bad. It ALWAYS leads to waste and corruption.

    Not that facts would matter to you, but the U.S. public schools produce graduates who rank 25th in the World in terms of their knowledge, but we spend the most amount of money per child of any education system in the world. One would think it is obvious that throwing more money at education is not going to solve the problem.

    Teachers who can't be fired because of their poor performance are the direct result of Unions that protect their members regardless of their behavior. That system is not only not working, it's absolutely insane.

    So the answer is to spend less money, screw the teachers, and teach creationism? No wonder this country is going to hell in a hand basket.

    The answer is that we have no choice but to spend less money as the current system is unsustainable. The trick is to do it wisely. Are there teachers that need to be fired? Of course, some may even need to go to jail. Are there programs that aren't working? No need to even answer that one. We are spending a fortune per kid and getting plentiful results. A wise person would see that something has to change and more money is not the answer.

    I don't recall saying anything about teaching creationism since I am against that, but I do take offense at everything we do including school has to be available in Spanish. Last time I looked, Mexico is still a separate country.

    This philosophy would have resulted in a German victory in WWII. Shame phony republicans cannot learn from history. Just out of curiosity how much is being spent per kid. I sent my kid to a private school and the tuition was around 13,000 in 2002 The tuition did not cover the full cost of education so the total cost was probably around 15,000. Do you spend as much?

    You may not mention creationism but many on the wacko right do. I have never had the problem of spanish being made available? What exactly is the problem?

    This country has built our "prosperity" on credit and printing money out of thin air for decades. As in all things that are unsustainable, we have have about come to the end of that trail.

    No matter which party you consider yourself to be, at least one of two things are about to happen, and it's not far off:

    1. We drastically cut spending across the board to levels that at least show some sign of fiscal responsibility.

    or

    2. We lose our ability to borrow massive amounts of money to support our lifestyle. The dollar will be replaced as the World's reserve currency and we get to experience total economic collapse.


    Either way, we are about to finally face the consequences for spending far more than we take in at every level from our personal lives to small cites and towns to the Federal Government. This is not about ideals or what we wish we could do, it is simply about economic survival.

    I would think even the most jaded liberal would have to admit that spending nearly 50% more than our income is not sustainable.

The rest of the world sees what Americans will not and are taking measures as we speak to end the financial rein of America over the rest of the planet. We are bankrupt, pure and simple at every level of government and yet so many refuse to admit it. If we don't get our collective heads out and start controlling spending right now, there are going to be no schools, no welfare, no food stamps or any other benefit our society currently enjoys.

    You keep mentioning Germany. Study Wiemar Germany in the 1920's and you will see how Hitler came to power. If we don't get our act together financially, I promise you the people of America are going to be begging for another Hitler right here in the USA. Desperate people do desperate things. Before you start spouting history, perhaps you should study some yourself. Try starting with the Roman Empire since it was in it's heyday very similar to our position in ours. Their downfall was not about morals as the religious right would want you to believe, but because they debased their currency to pay for trying to maintain an empire they could no longer afford. Sound familiar? The value of our dollar has been debased by 95% since 1913. It doesn't take an Einstein to see what is happening here.

    Btw, before you bring up the rich paying for all of this, the answer is not more taxes. That has been the path of every failing empire and it hasn't worked yet, nor is it going to work this time.

    None of this is news or even new. Empires have risen and died all throughout history. All one has to do is read a bit and it's easy to see where this is going.

    Our world and the things in it have changed drastically in the last hundred years. Mankind's greed and lust for power haven't changed in thousands of years, and they are not going to. Our Forefathers gave us a plan to avoid all of this and we have ignored it for the "common good". We are going to pay the ultimate price for our ignorance and apathy.

    Well I agree that spending should be cut. Unfortunately it probably won't at least in the areas where it should be cut. The war on drugs and the military industrial complex are two areas that should be drastically cut. But their interests groups are most likely too powerful and the American public too gullible for any real meaningful cuts to be made.

    Which leads to the most logical thing that should be done and that is to restore the tax rates on the rich to what they were under Clinton. Under Clinton we had balanced budgets. If we are going to waste money we should pay for it.

    I frankly don't have much hope for this country. It is firmly on a downward slide into banana republic status. In 25 years we will probably be like the UK, its days have passed.

    We actually are not as far apart as it would seem. I totally agree that the war on drugs needs to be eliminated right now and our worldwide military needs to cut back to defending the Homeland as intended and authorized by the Constitution.

    But, you are right, that's not going to happen because we have the best government money can buy.

    Like you also, I frankly don't believe that this country has a snowball's chance of surviving, it's much closer to collapse than most realize or even want to know. It's not going to be 25 years. If it makes it another 25 months I'm going to be amazed. We went over the edge in Sept 2008 and the only reason it is still standing is a very clever smoke and mirrors job and a populace that is by and large, sound asleep.

    I'm still fighting the good fight, but plan "b" can be implemented in minutes to leave the country I love forever. That is truly the best way to avoid the coming collapse.

    Not sure what the future will hold if this next election is a win for the social wealth re-distribution king of the Unions, the current President B.O. Marxist Pied Piper of America. The unions (especially State Unions) who receive up to 40% more than the private sector in pay and benefits have not felt any pain from the recession, only the private sector. The insane thing is that the debt is like 14 trillion and climbing screwing the future of the USA for at least 20 years for the young people of America (they may have to learn another language and move out of America to get jobs). Thanks to President B.O. the Marxist Pied Piper of America.

    Who should we be afraid of? Apparently, you are referring to the few select people who donated millions of special interest dollars from out of state. You can thank Justice Alito and his cronies on the Court for this victory. Just as you cannot be proud of a win after cheating, you cannot be proud of an electoral victory that has been bought. No one is afraid of you. We are afraid of the big money that has flooded our electoral system.

    I would be interested to see if you can cite a credible source to support this claim. In 2008, there were much stricter limits on political donations. I admit that President Obama's campaign did not have adequate safeguards in place to protect the campaign from foreign donations. John McCain, on the other hand, had excellent safeguards in place. President Obama's campaign corrected this issue, however, and returned all donations that were found to be questionable. As I previously mentioned, I would be interested to see some evidence to support this claim.

    Obama returned large sums of money to donors that were found to be from the Mid-east. In addition, I remember him giving money back to some criminals or fugitives. Surely you can look that up for yourself. Here is an article that shows how Obama's campaign was slowly but surely complying with the FEC, which was checking suspicious donations.

    My Question is really "Why is Obama even close?" If you look at the fundamentals, the president should be getting crushed right now.

    The economic mood of the country is terrible. The economy is still in recession. 30 percent of Americans say they are better off than they were four years ago. Barely a third believes the country is heading in the right direction. The economic climate is as bad as or worse than it was in 1968, 1976, 1992 and 2000, years when incumbent parties lost re-election.

    Then there is the ideological climate. Obama has governed from the left, but the country has shifted to the right. 42 percent of Americans call themselves conservatives, the highest number ever measured.

    According to an ABC News/Washington Post survey, only 22 percent of voters believe Obama's views on the size and role of government are a reason to vote for him. The share of Americans who say the current level of inequality is acceptable has increased 7 percentage points since 1998, to 52 percent. Obama's main policy initiative, health-care reform, remains decidedly unpopular: 38 percent now support it, and 55 percent oppose, according to another ABC News/Washington Post poll.

Obama's main policy initiative, health-care reform, remains decidedly unpopular: 38 percent now support it, and 55 percent oppose, according to another ABC News/Washington Post poll.

    Finally, Obama has lost support among crucial constituencies. He alienated independents in 2009 and has never won them back. According to a Pew Research Center poll, his support among Catholics has fallen to 42 percent from 49 percent. Even young voters are moving away. And as Galston notes, voter registration among Hispanics has declined 5 percentage points, the first significant drop in four decades.
    This race, like almost all re-election races, is shaping up to be a referendum on the incumbent, not a choice between two visions. Obama's job-approval numbers are driving everything else.

    Today, 48 percent of Americans approve of his performance. That's high given the circumstances, and near the 50 percent threshold he will need to win.

    So how has he stayed so competitive? First, the Democrats' demographic advantages are kicking in. The population segments that are solidly Democratic, like single women and the unchurched, are expanding. The segments that are more Republican — two-parent families and observant Catholics — are shrinking.

    I'd say that Obama is a slight underdog this year: The scuffling economy will grind away at voters. But his campaign style is keeping him afloat and frankly he is more Likable than Romney.

    To the Republicans, Do not underestimate Obama, he is a Master Campaigner, He has poor leadership skills but that’s made up with his Community organizing skills, he can rally the base and campaign his way out of a very poor 4 years.

    So what is the NWO and who really is the proponent of it?

    The Walker campaign out spent Barrett twenty to one, most of Walker's money came from out of state and came from a handful of very wealthy donors. Meanwhile Barrett's money mostly came from within Wisconsin and from working class donors who contributed little but there were many. Let's see a cabal of wealthy donors, or working class people banding together for a common cause, which one seems like a secretive conspiracy to undermine our nation and sell it off to the highest bidder?

    Sorry, but I am in a hurry and don't have time to read your link at this moment. I would like to point out, however, that the only names that were not disclosed by Obama were donors who gave less than $200. This is not illegal. Disclosing small donors is optional. In addition, the FEC did investigate and found suspicious donors in this category who donated thousands of dollars in small increments. This money was returned, per the FEC.
